Tackling disruption: How can large companies collaborate with start-ups (and vice versa)?
Companies from a range of industries are being disrupted at an unprecedented rate by a variety of innovations. From technological breakthroughs in cloud computing and big data analytics to disruptions like crowdfunding and social engagement, many of these innovations are created by start-ups. Companies attempt to address the implications of these disruptions and become more innovative as they are trying to determine how to interact with and benefit from the start-up ecosystem.
At the same time, start-ups are looking to profit from corporates' experiences and resources. However, often a collaboration leaves both parties rather disappointed than happy every after. What are the benefits and pitfalls of such a collaboration? What should both parties look for when engaging in these collaborations? Which skills are needed on both sides (and from graduates) to successfully drive a collaboration for disruption?
Join us for an engaging discussion where we will explore the benefits and pitfalls of collaborations between start-ups and large companies.
